Flying Low In Roxborough Park

guest blog by Nila Ridings
These Douglas County, Colorado residents aren’t pilots but they are driving so fast they nearly ran over their neighbor, Diane Powers, twice in one night!  One speeder wiped out a 30 foot tree and if he loses control on that curve again there’s a big rock in its place now.
Warning!!!  This HOA is using camera-equipped radar and tickets will be issued to homeowners which will include any of their guests who are caught speeding. Oh yes! If the pizza delivery girl is trying to deliver it “hot and on time“…you could get hit with a fine for her misdeeds.
Homeowners, wonder what will be next?  Well let’s see…how about breathalyzers, seat belt checks, texting, eating, sneezing, and talking-on-the-cell while driving?  Brace yourselves for the “wannabe cops” patrolling the streets of Roxborough!
Speed bumps were removed because they interfered with snow removal and emergency response time.
If things don’t change, I suppose they could always require owners to park at the gate and walk from there.
